Contrary to what was reported earlier this morning when Sony Mobile US president Ravi Nookala mentioned that Sony will not be making use of Google’s Android Wear platform for its very own range of wearable devices simply because the company had already invested a whole lot of resources and time into its smartwatch platform, but life being life, it pays never to burn all of your bridges. In a nutshell, this statement by Nookala does not mean that Sony has closed their door to Android Wear for good.
Sony decided to use Twitter to clarify Nookala’s statement, touting that “the door is definitely not closed to Android Wear” after taking into consideration that right now, Android Wear is an extremely young platform, so Sony intends to use what they have at the moment by concentrating on their SmartWatch 2 timepiece and SmartBand. I guess it makes much sense, considering Sony’s close partnership with Google for their range of Android-powered smartphones.
I guess this means that it will still be some time before we see a Sony smartwatch being released from their production lines that will offer support for Android Wear. Ah well, only time will tell as to whether Google’s gambit would pay off or not.
